I'm new to this forum, and joined because I got a problem that really sucks;
I was watching a movie one night, then when I'm going to bed I hit the sleep button on both my computers.
The day after I go away from home for some days, then I got back today. I pressed the Enter button on both computers, they start up without any problems.
But when I login to the one I use most of the time, I notice that Firefox wont work, there is no error, actually, it starts but nothing happens, its just blank, it says "Done" in the bottom left corner, but it is nothing in the Firefox window.
And when I close FF I get a error;
"Firefox has stopped working
1.Check online for a solution and close the program
2.Close the program"
If I chose the 1st option I get this message "The exception enknown software exception (0xc0000005) occurred in the application at location 0x02ff8cf0.
Click on OK to terminate the program."
Then I tried IE (32x), same thing there, so I try IE 64x, it worked.
Also I tried to restart my switch, ping some webpages, release / renew IP.
There was no difference. I also tried System Restore, but I could only restore to about 15 minutes back in time, wich was when I turned on my comuter today. And it didnt help.
Then I tried to start some games to see if it worked, first Peggle Deluxe, that worked fine. Then WoW, that did not work fine at all. The first thing that is wrong is that when I start WoW the launcher says "Cannot connect to the News Server. Please check the network and try again later." I pressed play anyways, just to see what happens, and what happens is that the screen turns dark, Winamp is still playing music, but no sound from WoW, and alt + tab doesnt work, same with the windows button or alt+ f4. but ctrl+alt+del works. so I was able to close the program, it wasnt responding either ofc.
Now I've been searching around the internet hoping to find some solution, but I cant seem to find anything, and TBH I dont really know what to search for, I really dont know what the problem is, even tho there is so many symptoms. It looks as if all 32bit programs just dont work anymore! (Altho winamp.exe*32 runs without any problems)
I had this problem one time before, I was playing Crysis and someone spoke to me to I was gonna press ESC, but I missed and hit Sleep. When the computer started again, it froze at startup, so I restarted it and then it started normally but no 32x programs worked porperly.
I work as an IT apprentice, so I know something about computers, but not very much. My boss on the other hand know very much but he's on vacation so I cant ask him, anyhow; The first time I had this problem we were 5-6 guys who all work within IT. Some not so experienced ( like me ) and others with lots of knowledge about computers. But we didnt come up with an answer. After about 2 hours my boss told me to try a system restore, that worked. But now I only have 1 system restore point, and that didnt help.
So, if anyone here knows anything about this problem, please HELP ME!
I dont know if it has anything to say but my computer spec is:
- Asus P6T Deluxe Motherboard
- ATI Gainward Radeon 4780X2 2GB
- Intel i7 920 @ 2,67 GHz
- Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz 6GB CL9-9-9-24 for Core i7 x2
Please help me, I read the "How to ask for help " thread too, and will put my PC specs in my profile.
Also, just now I got another error from NOD32, I dont know if it has anything to do with this problem, but it say "Failure to open socket. - OK"
